â€śItâ€™s All About Money!â€ť is the theme of our September 26-27, 2013, symposium on fundraising. With a 50% response to our survey asking what topics would be most helpful, our respondents replied: â€śTalking about money in stewardship campaigns,â€ť â€śPreaching about moneyâ€ť, â€śTalking with major donorsâ€ť, â€śAsking people to remember the Church in their willsâ€ť (talking about money and death). It wasnâ€™t rocket science to determine the theme!
The Symposium will be held on Thursday, September 26th from 1:00-5:00 p.m. and Friday, September 27th, 2013 from 8:30-12:30 at The Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Avenue, New York City. There will be a â€śmeet and greetâ€ť hour following Thursdayâ€™s session, and we will close with the Eucharist on Friday. Space is limited to the first 65 who respond.
